Ergonomic Work Assessment.

Ergonomic Assessments are required if you want to address in detail individual worker requirements to improve health, comfort and productivity in the workplace, when a medical condition or ongoing symptoms are experienced. 

This assessment allows implementation of reasonable adjustments under the Disability Discrimination Act DDA 1995/2005. From October 2010 the majority of the Equality Act 2010 will be implemented and will replace major parts of the provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act.

Now that the Med3 'sick note' is a 'fit note' (since April 2010) this type of assessment can assist in the process to get the individual back to work after a period of illness, if a GP considers an individual 'may be fit for work'.

This assessment can be conducted prior to an employee returning to work following a period of sick leave, in order to ensure that the work task layout and equipment are the most suitable for them.

This assessment can also help prevent ill health in employees.
